I can confirm that behavior on OI /hipster distribution (NOTE, package 
downloaded from 
tested also 28.0b9 version). Same problem...

BUT! Version 24.3.0esr works just fine!!!

Also, I cannot see image preview in TILE window, but that is //NOT// so 


P.S. I did truss on both (27 and 24esr) versions and couldn't spot 
difference. I have tried few times to change TMPDIR (in command line 
when invoking FF), like this:

TMPDIR=/my/tmp/dir /opt/sfw/bin/firefox

and that has worked randomly (so, each restart differently - most time 
leaving empty files around). So, at the end, I kept 24esr ...
